Case Progression

What you’ll learn to do: describe how a case progresses through the U.S. court system and identify a trial from an appeal

In this outcome, you’ll recap some of the information you learned about in previous sections about what happens when a case is first filed and how it moves through the courts and to the appeals process.


The learning activities for this section include:

  • Reading: The Pretrial and Trial Phase
  • Reading: Burger King v. Rudzewicz

Take time to review and reflect on each of these activities in order to improve your performance on the assessment for this section.
